Possibly, but you can't underscore how good Smith was last year. The Hawks averaged 2 GAA against them, Nashville who is certainly not a perimeter team averaged 1.8 GAA. Even the gritty, grindy Kings only averaged 2.8 GAA. Smith stopped everyone last year. 2.18 GAA in 16 games last year in the playoffs.
